Freelance Instructor

What if kids are intrinsically motivated to learn? At Saturday Kids students don’t just learn to code. They code to learn. We cannot teach kids everything. What we can do is bring out the curiosity in kids, encourage them to look at problems and think ‘I can figure this out myself’. Saturday kids learn how to learn. Since 2012, we have taught over 5,000 students how to learn through classes in programming, electronics, digital art and design thinking. Our mission is to use digital literacy classes to transform kids into self-motivated learners who are curious, inventive and resourceful.
